Minehead is one of Somerset’s busiest holiday resorts, with its extensive promenade, sandy beach, harbour and natural amphitheater formed by the bay. Minehead is recognised as the gateway to Exmoor. The 630 mile South West Coastal path starts on Minehead seafront. From the seafront it’s a short walk to West Somerset Railway, the longest heritage railway in England.
Minehead is the largest centre of population for the rural District of West Somerset (circa 13,000) and is the main economic and service centre.
The priorities of the Coastal team are to build on the strengths of Minehead, and further regenerate the town, to future proof it to be a vital and vibrant community where the local population have access to the appropriate skills and training they need to realize potential, gain employment and grow business. Additionally the ambition is for there to be exciting cultural and leisure provision and most importantly that our residents and visitors can access a wide range of services and facilities.
This will be achieved by extensive community consultation and community ownership of specific regeneration activity. Working together in partnership for the common good for Minehead will be the number one priority for the Coastal Community Team.
